Following the recent announcement from Nintendo Power about their close-down this December, we’re faced with a situation that’s been coming for a while – the end of print games journalism (and print journalism as a whole). But should the much loved magazines quit while they’ve got the chance, before bankruptcy runs up and slaps them around the face?
Sure, the time will come for print media to die out, and everyone will suffer including games journalists, but unfortunately, due to the interactivity of games themselves, perhaps they will be one of the first groups to disappear. However, that time isn’t quite upon us yet, and many print publications are still going strong. Until they really start to suffer, leave them be, don’t give up hope and collect as many free gifts as possible… while you still can.
Think magazines are way past their time? Would you rather carry on your collections for years to come? Whichever side of the debate you stand on, share your opinions with us! We won’t ridicule you like an angry troll. Probably.
